Generating Article Placeholders from Wikidata for Wikipedia Lucie-Aimée Kaffee International Media and Computing, HTW Berlin 4 March 2016 The major objective of this thesis is to increase the access to open and free

knowledge in Wikipedia by developing a MediaWiki extension called Arti- clePlaceholder. ArticlePlaceholders are content pages in Wikipedia auto-generated from information provided by Wikidata. The criterias for the extension were developed with a requirement analysis and subsequently implemented. This thesis gives an introduction on the fundamentals of the project and includes the personas, scenarios, user-stories, non-functional and functional requirements for the requirement analysis. The analysis was done in order to implement the features needed to achieve the goal of providing more information for under-resourced languages. The implementation of these requirements is the main part of the following

thesis.

Automatically assigning Wikipedia articles to macro-categories Jacopo Farina

Hypertext English 2011 The online encyclopedia Wikipedia offers millions of articles which are organized in a hierarchical category structure, created and updated by users. In this paper we present a technique which leverages this rich and disordered graph to assign each article to one or more topics. We modify an existing approach, based on the shortest paths between categories, in order to account for the direction of the hierarchy. 0 0
Wikipedia as a Data Source for Political Scientists: Accuracy and Completeness of Coverage Adam R. Brown PS: Political Science & Politics English 2011 In only 10 years, Wikipedia has risen from obscurity to become the dominant information source for an entire generation. However, any visitor can edit any page on Wikipedia, which hardly fosters confidence in its accuracy. In this article, I review thousands of Wikipedia articles about candidates, elections, and officeholders to assess both the accuracy and the thoroughness of Wikipedia's coverage. I find that Wikipedia is almost always accurate when a relevant article exists, but errors of omission are extremely frequent. These errors of omission follow a predictable pattern. Wikipedia's political coverage is often very good for recent or prominent topics but is lacking on older or more obscure topics. 10 2
